I write this with a westerly gale raging outside but summer is only just around the corner. The Boat Bid team have been working hard selecting a fantastic range of used motor and sailing boats for the summer auction. There’s just a week to go before the catalogue is launched but we still managed time to sit out in glorious sunshine yesterday lunch time and we’ve also sneaked in some fantastic sailing already this year.

For those of you still looking for a boat for the summer the Summer online auction catalogue has something for everyone. We’ve got almost 40 used boats already confirmed and more are being added all the time.

In the power boat section we have boats from Sea Ray, Sealine, Fairline and Bayliner as well as an Aquaflyte RIB and a President 47. In the sailing boat section we have boats from Moody, Bavaria, Beneteau and Nicholson and a whole host of other manufacturers.

The boats in the catalogue are all still for sale with Boatshed.com so please do take a look, with over 2,700 boats listed Boatshed.com really does have something for everyone.

The Summer BoatBid auction catalogue is released on 23rd May at 10:00 GMT. If you would like us to send you an email to remind you please register with BoatBid, it costs nothing and we’ll keep you informed of all our auctions. You’ll also be able to view up to 70 photos of the boats in the BoatBid catalogue and all the boats listed with Boatshed.com.

If you’ve got a boat to sell them I’m afraid we won’t be able to include her in the Summer auction but we are taking entries now for our Southampton Boat Show Auction in September. Please complete the online formand we’ll get one of our qualified Boatshed brokers to get in touch.

In the mean time enjoy looking at all the used boats for sale with Boatshed.com and start dreaming of those wonderful sunny days out on the water be it sailing or motoring, fast or slow, near or far there really is nothing quite like it.
